hi everyone. I've read about this in a few threads, but it's always ignored or a different situation. Hopefully I can put the nail in the coffin now: I have an old MacBook I want to use as a server. It's plugged into Ethernet and enabled to wake for network access. When the computer is open and asleep, I can send a magic packet and wake it up. Perfect. I want to be able to do the same thing with the lid closed. Solutions? It is set to sleep after 20 minutes of not being used which is what I want because it doesn't need to be running 24/7--that's the beauty of WOL. Surely there is a way to make the MacBook ignore a closed lid or make it think it's always open. Anybody have any success? Thanks!
